The Marathon Completed in 1 Hour and 59 Seconds

In the News

It is not official, but it obviously sets a target for future marathon runners

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/athletics/50025543

Have you ever run the marathon? What was your personal best?

Fake news! It's not humanly possible to complete the Marathon in 1 Hour and 59 Seconds!

One hour and 59 minutes is do-able though, if you run!

Only teasing hspexy πŸ˜‚

Lol I’m quite competitive so when I hear about records getting broken, I aim for it...but I know the injuries that marathon runners get from training alone, so I’m certainly in no rush to get the wears and tears from it 😜

Lol I recall when the media got footage of Paula Radcliffe taking a wee on the curb during one of her marathon runs...just short of taking a dump 😜

Rockman she looks a bit more like JK Rowling than she does Daniel, but either way, I do t think there’s a connection 😊

That's definitely true. She does look a bit like Rowling.

She's English so there's that there are similarities between them, just like the Spanish and Portuguese tend to look like twins and brothers and sisters. hspexy

What an achievement, I have only ever done those Race for life 5k events and that was hard enough. I can run just over 5k in 30mins, I'm happy with that
